Excellent Antique Clichy Spaced Complex Millefiori And Roses Paperweight - Circa 1860

This piece contains an assortment of spaced complex canes in pink, red, maroon. green, cobalt blue, turquoise, purple, yellow and white on clear ground. Four trademark Clichy rose canes are included in the design: one white and green, one white and pink, and two pink and green. All told a wonderful piece that is from my personal collection.

Size: 2 7/8" Diameter.

Condition: Very Good to Excellent. There is glare from the flash. Not defects.

Circa: 1860.

Provenance: Fall 2005 L. H. Selman Price Guide and Auction. This was Lot 28, pictured on Page 9. At that time the estimate was$1800 - $2500 before Buyers Premium of ten percent. We list this excellent piece for only a bit more than the high estimate when we bought it eight years ago. I have confidence in antique paperweights going up in value, as investors worry about the USDollar and the low interest rates for savings. My personal philosophy has been two-fold - first, buy what you love and enjoy, so it will bring happiness into your life and second - buy the highest quality that you can afford. I have thoroughly enjoyed my years of collecting, and I am quite proud of the quality of my collections. Hopefully whoever buys my treasures will enjoy them as much or more than I have.
